I have owned quite a few other string trimmers in the past and this is by far the best one I have ever owned. The Ryobi 40 volt electric string trimmer is powerful, easy to use, lightweight, and has enough juice to trim our 3/4 acre lot. I have been able to use this product for almost two full seasons now and have been very impressed.
I also have the 40 volt electric chain saw that works with the same battery system and I have also reviewed that as well. I am normally not a huge fan of Ryobi as a brand but I have purchased a few other Ryobi products and have been impressed with the design and function. Only time will tell how well they hold up but after a couple of years of using these 2 Ryobi products I am starting to warm up to the brand.
I prefer to purchase electric and batter powered devices when I can as I prefer to own devices that I can produce my own energy for. With gas prices constantly on the rise it is a nice feeling to not have to worry about purchasing gas all the time for trimmers, chain saws, and other yard tools.
I do not receive any incentive to review these products, I do this to give others information so that they can make informed decisions.
Thanks for watching!
